Volunteer training for English Conversation Clubs
Are you interested in volunteering? Are you a confident English speaker? Have you got one or two hours spare each week? Would you be interested in helping people improve their English speaking skills? Some of the clubs are in schools, children’s centres, places of worship and community centres around Waltham Forest, as well as online (Zoom).
We offer volunteers a 5-week FREE City and Guilds accredited training course (Level 3) to support adults who have English as a second language. There is also an ongoing support and development programme for volunteers who complete the training and contribute to the running of a club.
Our courses run throughout the year.
